Ode to You

Here among the world pandemic,
sick people on the news,
and
I 
like them,
suddenly 
fell
into isolation,
voiceless,
confused
and 
vulnerable

surrounded by 
family
and
friends 
but
not one 
mattered
Only you:
the person whole held my heart
one call ,
two words 
grasping for air
I sat in a puddle of tears 
Only you:
could make
a
stomach hurt 
like millions 
except,
I’m not infected 
just broken hearted
